Description
The New York Central System by Michael Leavy

In 1913, the Michigan Central Station opened its majestic entrances to the world.  Designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed & Stern (the same architectural firm who designed New York’s Grand Central Terminal), MC’s combination headquarters office building and Detroit station was a marvel of grandeur and comfort any traveler lucky enough to utilize it.  Soldiers went to war, families both separated and rejoined, and folks looking for an honest living in the Motor City all walked the Michigan Central's elegant corridors.  Since the last train departed in 1988, the structure fell prey to rapid deterioration.  This book captures the glory of the Michigan Central and its Detroit environs. Using photographs from the Burton Historical as well as private collections, the book illustrates the use of the Michigan Central Station by a city whose story dramatically parallels that of this magnificent structure.

Author Bio: Kelli B. Kavanaugh is currently administrator of the Corktown Citizens District Council, which represents the neighborhood adjacent to the Michigan Central Station.  In addition, she spent time as a contributing editor for Motormouth, a local magazine and web site.

 Be aware that the accuracy of some of Arcadia’s home-spun histories is sometimes questionable. Hence, your NYCSHS directors would be interested in reviews by knowledgeable members. Published by Arcadia Publishing, this softcover retails for $22, with NYCSHS members paying only $17.60. Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
